Keep Watching the Skies at Deep Creek Lake, MD

The Perseid meteor shower is taking place now and peaks the night of August 12-13. This year, viewing should be great because the moon will only be about 10% full at that time, and the new moon takes place on August 17. While most of our public lands close at sundown, a few have opportunities for night sky viewing – check with your nearest Maryland State Park to find out where!
